Pagac (Pagach)

Pagac (Pagach) created by Jane from Ohio

This is a Slovak/Ukrainian dish. My mother made this for lent. I found this recipe in a "Carpatho-Rusyn and American Favorite Cookbook" that was given to me as Christmas gift several years ago. I made this for a pre-Easter supper my friends and I had. I am including the Pagac filling at the end of the recipe.. While the dough is rising, I made the filling. Everyone love this dish.

    Hi Jane- I'm 100% Slovak. Both parents were from Lakewood. A lot of your recipes are very similar to my Moms. Did you every make Sour Mushroom Soup Sauerkraut Juice and Noodles? If so... do you have a recipe?

    Mom used to make it this way, but used to raise it and then flatten it, keep it over night and flatten it again so that it came out thin like unleavened bread. I actually make it using Pita Bread. My Dad came up with the idea and it works great Slice the pita bread in half... warm it in a toaster or toaster oven.... split it and stuff it with either mashed potatoes or cabbage.... toast it.. poke some holes it it... butter it and salt it. YUMMMMMM

    This appears much thicker than my grandma's pagach. I'm looking for a recipe that yields a thin pagach where the potatoes and cheese are integrated into the dough, and not layered. Have you seen anything like that?
